a lasting solution is to commence direct negotiations and we need an environment conducive to that. >> the palestinians say they were getting -- by britain and other countries for concessions on what they were requesting to be more specific, they wouldn't go to the icc, the criminal court, in order to get these european votes. it's important for the palestinians not to just get the, quote, usual band of countries that support them no matter what here. they would like to get a sizeable number, including western countries. france will vote in favor, spain and portugal. but the u.k. will abstain, germany will abstain. all they need is a simple majority here. but the way forward, maybe it inches everyone closer to that two-state negotiating process. or it's just symbolic. netanyahu of israel says this will not accomplish anything, about not hasten any type of peace agreement. they still haven't talked in months. >> and i'm sure it's not the least bit pleasing to the palestinians to hear secretary of state say we don't support it because we don't think it would work. and clearly a lot

voters, we need to make sure that when we graduate college, that we're put to that a job environment that we're able to live productively, that we're not burdened by higher taxes, that we're not burdened by the difficulties put forth by government spending at the rates that they have been. so when it comes to the fiscal cliff, our young voters more than ever want to make sure that our republicans and our candidates that are putting forth the message of working together to get this problem solved. i think whether you look at this simpson bowles plan or other things, we need to make sure we're work together and putting these important issues forth. >> rick: let's talk about entitlement reform. that's another topic that's very important for republicans and they have said that the leadership in washington, they want to hear the president. they want to hear democrats talk about entitlement reform. are young republicans in favor of a partial or whole privatization of our entitlement program? would young republicans be open to the idea of privatizing social security and things like that? >>
and in iraq throughout that whole period. women have performed extremely well in all of those environments. so i think even within our own country, there's plenty of evidence suggesting that women are very capable of handle these jobs. >> you know, the military's official policy towards servicewomen goes back to 1994. that's when this rule was put in place. why do you think it hasn't been looked at? what more needs to be done? >> well, for a number of years, we weren't really actively at war, so people weren't really looking at it. while we were at war, people have been concerned about just fighting the fight and getting the job done. but personally, i am a little surprised that since we have been at war for ten years, people haven't looked more closely at this, haven't looked at the reality of what is going on on the ground in iraq and afghanistan and haven't been making more steps to move this away. so i think we're headed there now. better late than never, i suppose, but we need to see this happen here soon. >> in getting ready for this segment with you, we contacted the department of defen
investments as you search for some return in this low-rate environment. this is a deepening vicious cycle. the white house and congress have not given us a fiscal policy as the economy bumps along the bottom now for four years and counting. so the federal reserve saves the day. we finally get some fiscal policy by going over the fiscal cliff even if it is considered bad policy. for some taxes on divs we could see those taxes soar to 44%. companies wait to disperse this year. some companies are borrowing money just to pay out the dividend before the new year so they can get their investors to get the 15% dividend tax. is this the kind of corporate financial responsibility we want? borrowing money just to give it away? who wants a dividend that a company cannot afford or if it can afford it it chooses to borrow the tax. this is just an observation on how one bad policy can act as a domino effect. bad policy begets bad policy. it is another reason why america is pleading with washington to get a deal done on the fiscal cliff. stop taunting one another with plans that each side knows will not

'll get. >> you know what, i think the environment, as you look out to next year, is really difficult, ross. i mean, you don't really know what is going to come out of the u.s. fiscal cliff, how damaging potentially that can be to u.s. confidence, u.s. activity. things seem to be holding up fairly well in china. but i think there is still going to be some concerns about the whole performance of the asian economy and whether that can actually pick up next year. and then, of course, in the eurozone itself, we seem to be mending the problems progressively and taking out the tail risks, which i think is good and that is the bottom line that investors should take going further forward, but at the same time, there are some elements that you can have. if you do a forecast, in a way you could come up with something like 1% quotes for next year, but at the same time, you have to be conscious that we've had such a battery of downside impact, downside negative news coming through really for all economists in the western world in the last few years. you have to be very cognizant of those. >> i th
. this fuel is lauded as great for the environment and a good thing. some manufacture you ares are saying guess what, it will void your warranty if you use this fuel in certain cars . what do you make of this whole thing? >> melissa, what happened this is good example where the government mandates picking winners and losers and forcing decisions on the part of consumers which could be harmful to consumers. comment by aaa coming out to say the decision to allow for e15 blend or 15% of their gasoline to be derived from biofuels, in this case ethanol, the auto manufacturers have said they will not honor their warranties if people use this fuel which is potentially harmful to their engines. the automakers researched this. melissa: it is amazing because they say i void your warranty. >> yeah. melissa: can you imagine you buy the fuel and put it among the manufacturers, chrysler, gm, toyota, especially in older vehicles and look at your manufacturers website if you're in this group, what happens with the e15 the fuel separates and ethanol in there is highly corrosive to your engine. is this new
to listen yet, so we've just got to wait. that's obviously not a great environment to move things along. the optimists on both sides think we're going to get a deal, not by christmas, but by new year's. if you ask people, what's the next step? what gets things moving? it's still complicated, and nobody has a consensus on that. the biggest challenge is how you strike a deal this year that has some things left undone for next year. and there's all sorts of people thinking about different kinds of triggers, different kind of things that say, well, if congress doesn't do x, then y kicks in, but there's no agreement on what those need to be. there's going to be more revenue, but things like entitlement reform, tax reform, those things are still very unsettled. >> so senator tom coburn yesterday on "morning joe" became the latest to break rank, saying he could support president obama's tax proposal. coburn joins a growing chorus of republicans from outside the house of representatives, urging house leadership to clear the way for a broad deal that would include tax increases on the wealthy. h
, it is not as bad as people make it to be. this is a post-environment so people are sort of piling on, i think, that these guys can make some headway. they have to really have messages that work. as i said before, you look at, if you look at hispanics and african-americans, typically these guys are much more friendly. so, if they start to really talk to them in tone and not just in words, but in action and deeds, folks want to be successful. republican party has stood for that for a long time. it's sort of they lost their way. what they have do, also, alex, is live in reality. this is not one thing they understand. the way they're handling the fiscal cliff and appointing the chairman. live in the reality. you don't have to change overnight, but you have to do things that sort of move the ball down the road and african-americans who want to be in a republican party, but the republican party has to meet them at least halfway. >> morris, i think you touch on something really important. it's not just the message and not just what you say to them, your actions do matter and it needs to be more incl
